    Actually not. A 1 meg fusion device exploded at 100,000 ft. would disrupt power, kill the computers in new cars as well as all the computers, TV's, radio, etc. for a radius of less than 100 KM.

    Wouldn't affect our friends one little bit.

    Thanks for looking up the page.

    The 100km cited in the USA map refers to the HOB Height of Blast.

    Various religions say lots of things, you can pretty much cherry pick things out of almost all religions that say their followers are supposed to go out and kill everybody! Just because the holy documents of a religion or sect say something, it doesn't mean that people follow it or take it seriously in day to day life!

    It also assumes a small fission device as they are better at producing EMP. That page wasn't ment to be a give all, know all source.... it was just to get you started. I researched all this stuff back in the cold war days, it still holds true today.

    But Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs speak of his return regularly. They do take it seriously in day to day life.

    They talk about lots of things, talk does not equal action. If the government was going to do something about this belief, they would have done it by now, back when the Iranian government was stronger.

    Not necessarily. They might be waiting for other pieces of the global chess game to move into place so that the cataclysm will be experienced worldwide and not just in the ME.

    And besides, they still have yet to attain nuclear weaponry and remember, one of their goals is the destruction of Iran.

    “We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”

    Right, they're waiting until they are even further weakened internally by continued protests. Protesters in Iran have started fighting back against the police and basij! That is a huge affront to Iranian government authority and legitimacy. Like I said, if they were gonna pull some suicidal move, the best time would have been when they were in a stronger position and had the people mobilized in their favour, say just after the Iran-Iraq War or something like that.

    You have not made a convincing argument at all, all you've got is rank speculation, and not even believable speculation at that. Get back to me when the regime commits suicide for blatantly religious reasons.

    As for the government of Iran being weak, they seem to have the majority of the support of the people in their country.

    In international relations talk is cheap. Rhetoric dominates. Most sensible people (which excludes bhkad because he is consumed by his own agenda) understand that.
